Career workshops and tools

Many ISS students left their previous jobs and look for new challenges.

Some of our MA graduates move on within the academic world and pursue a PhD, others look for a job in the development sector.

ISS has a special Career Services Corner in the library. Here you will find interesting books on career planning and networking, flyers with tips where to search for a job, announcements of presentations and adverts on a notice board.

In addition there is a dedicated and very dynamic and active group for students and alumni in Facebook where internships and vacancies in development are shared.

On a regular basis, ISS alumni share their experiences with current students.

Career Planning Workshop

ISS offers students a Career Planning Workshop.

The workshop consists of three sessions and focuses on a personal SWOT analysis, CV writing, preparing for interviews and networking. The Workshop can be done several times throughout the year and is free accessible for all ISS students!

On a regular basis we organize ‘Career Talks’ where ISS alumni and current students and staff share their experiences and steps in their careers.

Students meet and discuss with ISS alumna Mare Fort,  Vice President People and Culture at Care. She studied Politics of Alternative Development and graduated in 1994. (October 2017).

There is a unique global network of more than 13,000 men and women from over 150 countries who used to study at ISS.
